The idea was birthed in a season of loss and confusion for a relatively young filmmaker. He wondered what might be next. Monday, we highlight the new TV series, The Chosen. Many have already viewed the first four episodes. The director and co-writer, Dallas Jenkins, talks about his vision for a dramatic series about Jesus and His first followers. Don’t miss the conversation.
Dallas Jenkins, son of celebrated Left Behind author Jerry Jenkins, first produced the independent feature Hometown Legend at the age of 25 and shepherded it to distribution by Warner Brothers. In the nearly 20 years since then, he has directed and produced over a dozen feature and short films for companies such as Universal, Lionsgate, Pureflix, Hallmark Channel, and Amazon. His most recent film, The Resurrection of Gavin Stone, released in theaters in 2017. He is now directing and producing the largest crowd-funded media project of all-time, a multi-season series about the life of Christ entitled "The Chosen."
